Our stay was courtesy of British Airways, whose outward flight from Nairobi had been delayed, so I cannot comment on the costs. We were, however, impressed with how well the staff responded to the sudden influx of tired travellers from the airport some 15-20 minutes away. They were efficient and very pleasant. The hotel is fairly new and situated on... More

In June 2014 I travelled for the first time to Nairobi and stayed at the Ole Sereni. On my 2nd trip to Nairobi in August 2014 I opted to stay at the EKA Hotel in Nairobi. The EKA Hotel and the Ole Sereni are situated close to one another. The hotel is situated halfway between the airport and Nairobi City... More

Conveniently located about 15 min drive to/from the airport . A modern hotel with good facilities and clean rooms . The dinner and breakfast was a bit disapointing and lacks choice . Sleep quality is very good with speedy wi fi services . Overall I thought it was a bit pricey.

My sons and I stayed here three times as a part of a 13-day Go-Ahead / Vintage Africa tour package. Very modern hotel. Excellent security. Convenient to the airport. Great rooms. Friendly staff. Good food. Outstanding WiFi. Unfortunately, the beds are very hard and the environment very noisy. Heavy fire-resistant doors slam shut with a thud that can be heard... More

Stayed here one night before heading out on safari. Very fancy hotel located on the side of the highway and beside a concerted construction site. It was a pretty standard hotel with a restaurant, bar and pool, but too far to just go for a walk or to go shopping. Taxis are expensive to just tour around and if if... More

Stayed at EKA overnight waiting for the rest of my travel group to arrive. As a single female traveler with no experience traveling on the African continent, I wanted to find a comfortable hotel that was relatively close to the Nairobi airport and would be easy for a newbie traveler to get to and feel safe. I had arranged for... More

Stayed at EKA overnight before flight to the Maasai Mara. It's an airport hotel, basically it's ok but obviously nothing special. Location is close to both the main n the safari airports but appalling traffic means the transfer still takes up to an hour in morning rush hour. The walls and ceilings are paper thin and you hear constant noise... More

The shower floods because it doesn't drain fast enough and the toilet didn't flush.The door/entry into the hall where my room was didn't have a shock absorber attached so it would slam shut when someone entered the hall.Beautiful hotel and comfortable bed though
